Welcome to September’s edition of more free money from dividend investing.
Before i get into that here is a quick peak of what this month has been like.
Well this month has been pretty busy with little Zoey starting Kindergarten, business events, Fireman’s ball, birthday celebrations and wedding parties. Here’s a few pictures.
Now let’s see how the portfolio did while we were having fun and sleeping.
I sold nothing in September
I have added to my current position in Chartwell Retirement Residences
Here is a breakdown about what they are and do:
Chartwell Retirement Residences is an unincorporated, open-ended trust. The Company indirectly owns, manages and operates a range of seniors housing communities from independent living through assisted living to long term care. Its segments include Canadian Retirement Operations and Canadian Long Term Care Operations. It owns and operates senior residences in Canada. Its portfolio of residences includes independent living residences for seniors that include retirement units/townhouses/bungalows providing meals and general services; independent supported living residences for seniors that include retirement units/townhouses/bungalows with household general services; assisted living residences for seniors requiring personal care services; memory care units for seniors having Alzheimer’s or other form of dementia and requiring personal care services, and Long term care residences for people requiring professional nursing care on a daily basis and over 24-hour supervision.
With the baby boomers retiring and the number of seniors to double over the next 25 years the demand for these type of facility’s definitely out weigh the supply. They recently had a 6% pull back and i just couldn’t resist. They pay a nice dividend annually with potential for growth, why wouldn’t i add to my position?

What did we do with the $119.23?
Well by this point you may know that i really like shoes, so how about these!
So it was time for some new ball hockey shoes. The problem was i only have $119.23 from dividends, sad really. Then my wife put her cape on and bought them for my birthday. Again i get away with reinvesting the cash. Thanks wife!
We are currently analyzing companies for our next purchase and Canadian banks are on that list.
